From A as in anteater to Z as in zebra: A visit to the Schönbrunn Zoo is a tour through every continent in the fascinating world of animals. See giant pandas, Siberian tigers, orangutans, and elephants, or immerse yourself in the Amazon and experience the tropical rain forest. A visit to the zoo offers young and old alike an enjoyable vacation in an incomparable setting and interesting insights into our nature and species conservation work.
For us it was a family trip. Our little one enjoyed the little wagon the most although the zoo offers a variety of playgrounds for the kids. The wagon can be borrowed in the zoo, therefore is also a caution to pay, which you get back by returning the wagon. As there are so many animals there we absolutely enjoyed to stay there almost a half of the day. As said it really is enjoyable for young and old alike.
